Our children are encouraged to have a voice and belief system that is based on trust and mutual respect. Activities are designed to be fun and educational with a huge focus on health and nutrition. Children at our centre absolutely love to participate in the weekly Happy Feet Health and Fitness classes as well as the myriad of exciting activities designed to sustain a positive attitude and healthy growth.
At Buggles Forrestfield we take our commitment to nature and the environment seriously and ensure that this is instilled in all our children. We want them to grow up to be caring, giving, and responsible adults.
Many of our staff have been with us for many years too and are qualified educators and care providers. Many staff also live locally and know the community well allowing us the opportunity to bring in different ideas that we can all share and benefits everyone involved.

Meet our Centre Manager – Jen Banks
I have been working in the Education and Care industry for over 20 years in a variety of roles. I have spent time working in training, Teaching Early Childhood Education and Care at TAFE.
My favourite part of working here is getting to know all of our families and seeing the children grow and develop during their time with us. At Buggles Forrestfield we believe by providing children with caring and committed staff, engaging educational programs and inspiring environments we can support all children to meet their fullest potential.
The team here at Buggles Forrestfield show genuine dedication, warmth and interest in our children and families. We celebrate all cultures throughout the centre and our educators speak languages from all over the world including Burmese, Hindi, Punjabi and Spanish. Their enthusiasm for meeting the needs and interests of the children in the centre is something I am very proud of.
